Tequila old-fashioned

I have been contemplating writing about cocktails for a while now. It is after all one of the things I'm most passionate about. To kick this subject and section of I would like to write about an old-fashioned cocktail introduced to me at Ruby in Copenhagen. The Tequila old-fashioned.

It is pretty simple to make. Take an old-fashioned glass and fill with a large chunk of ice. I prefer using a single block that just fits into the glass then using ice cubes. Add two spoons of agave syrup and two to three dashes of orange bitter. Pour two shots of good quality tequila and stir thoroughly.


  • 1-2 spoons agave syrup
  • 2-3 dashes orange bitter
  • 2 shots tequila

To vary this delicious drink use some Angostura bitters as well or instead of orange bitters.
